Everyone battles dry skin in the winter, regardless of skin type. The cold weather, combined with the outside temperatures and dry inside air means that your skin needs extra moisturizing.
Here are some great tips you can use to help reduce dry skin on your face.
- Don’t wash your face in the shower! Contrary to popular belief, washing your face in the shower where the water is hot strips moisture from your face. Instead of washing your face in the shower, consider washing your face at the sink. You can control the temperature of the water, ensuring it’s not too hot.
- Moisturize! During the winter months, use a facial cream that contains lavender oil as it helps with inflammation and calms the skin. After spending time outside, check in with your skin. If you’re seeing red spots of inflammation, try a face cream that contains lavender oil – like our Face and Eye Cream.
- Because of COVID-19 health protocols, we’ll be wearing face masks outside in the winter. This adds a layer of protection between the winter wind and your skin. When you come inside, don’t forget to drop your used face mask into a cleaning solution and wash your hands. Make it part of your routine to add some moisturizer on your face after cleaning your mask. Your face will breathe a sigh of relief.
- If you’re suffering from dry skin on your face, reduce the number of times you’re washing your face each day. The more you wash your face, the drier it feels. Stick to washing your face at night and applying a nighttime moisturizer. We recommend our Anti-Aging Serum, then our Face and Eye Cream for optimum moisture retention.
While the winter lasts, everyone battles dry skin. These 4 tips have been tried and tested with a variety of skin types to ensure that your battle with dry skin is short-lived.
